RE: Normal solution

From:"Lott, Robert" <>

A 2N solution of NaOH contains two gram-equivalent weights of solute per
liter of solution.  To determine the gram equiv. weight of NaOH, you simply
add the molecular weights of Sodium-23, Oxygen-16, and Hydrogen-1 = 40.0

40.0 gm/1000.0 ml d-water = 1N
80.0 gm/1000.0 ml d-water = 2N
200.0 gm/1000.0 ml d-water = 5N

Help!  Can someone tell me exactly how to make a 2N and a 5N solution of
sodium hydroxide?
